Food was fantastic, loved the tofu and various green curry options. Ambience is lovely (outdoors especially) and service was attentive but not overly ... have eaten and "taken away" from here a few times now, is a favourite in Nairobi.

Amazing Thai food for Nairobi, perfect location to kick back for the day and enjoy some sunshine, and also a great place to work as the internet is perfect. My go-to in Nairobi when I need a recharge and some excellent green papaya salad.
